Dorking, Surrey.

Dear Mr. Richards,
Thank you very much for your cheque and for your kind and appreciative letter.1
As regards recording. I fear we are the only town left which has D.C.,2 so I fear that is impossible. Instead I am sending you the draft of my lecture for you to print, if you feel so inclined.
Yours sincerely,
R Vaughan Williams

Denis Richards, Esq., M.A.,
Morley College,
